This phalaenopsis was a birthday gift from my husband (about four months ago) and is just now dropping a couple of its blossoms. I love how long-lived the blooms are which is why he enjoys giving them to me instead of cut flowers.

It’s become a habit for me to scan the fallen yet still beautiful blooms for posterity. Some scanned phals from the archives: translucent, fallen phal, papery, freshly fallen
